Christmas Gifts

Christmas came a little too early this morning--even earlier than in years past.

Since I accompanied Becky to Midnight Mass, she and I didn't get to bed until 1:30 am. So when Eddie woke up at 5:30 am, we were not exactly ready to get out of bed.

But ready or not, Christmas had arrived. After setting the coffeemaker to go, we staggered into the Orange Room to open our presents.

I won't begin to try to list all of the presents here, but some of the highlights are the Wii game that I told the boys they'd never get, including Hannah Montana, Rampage, Need For Speed, Avatar, and Wii Sports. Eddie got an Estes rocket that has a video camera in it, and Luke got a "bionic eye", which is a neat microscope that displays on the television.

My favorite gift, by far, was the keychain that Luke gave me. You'll have to check his blog for the, well, I'll just leave it a surprise. Totally Luke.

Becky got a night reading light called a Light Wedge (as much of a gift for me as for her), some Lily of the Valley perfume, and a Yankee candle that took Eddie over an hour to select.

Ed and Kathleen were here to enjoy the holiday with us too, receiving very nice shirts, books, and a bit of jewelry, plus a nice quilted runner from my mother.

Thank you to everybody for the great gifts. As I wrap this up, the boys are in playing on the Wii right now, with the soothing sounds of chaos and destruction flowing from the Purple Room.
